a secret smile...
Was sad to read Jim has passed away, he has a lovely grandaughter.
I have been fiddling with some variations with the basic steps I used on another portrait, here are my steps.
I did all the preliminary work in Corel Photopaint just because I am more
familiar with it than Photoshop. I have only had photoshop for about a year
and still have much to learn about it.
-adjusted color balance- shadows a dusky blue, highlights peachy
-ran Paint Alchemy (a variant of sponge clip) the Impressionist filter
would work great too (a spongy look, geez I love that plug, It's incredible!)
-saved this as image1
-opened original and desaturated about 50% ?
-saved as image2
-opened image1 in Painter 8 this was the working image
-opened image2 in Painter, set this as the clone source
-added a new layer in image1 and used a smeary camel varient set to clone
her face and edge of hair. Set this layer to 50% transp
-added a new watercolor layer and touched up the eyes, lips, hair and added
some red in her shirt
-dropped all layers and added paper texture, parchment.
-cropped, resized, unsharpen mask to bring back clarity
Hadn't spotted this lovely lass until today.
PR Brightness Filter
Impressionist/Fluffbutt2 - Stevie Goache/Modified.
Added two layers - One Soft Light 30%
Other Multiply 40%
Merged and flattened.
Added canvas texture.
Also darkenedd outside edges slightly.
Happy Fathers Day!
I was looking for images to practice portrait techniques and thought this one fit the bill!
I used TM watercolor AHB, highpass filter, smudging, and texture.

This thread was started a couple years before the "portraits" subforum was started by one of the founding members of the photo-art forum. Although Jim passed away about a year ago, I'm sure he would haved liked this interpretation a lot.
She's such a cute little girl!
My goal was to achieve a soft painterly effect without losing detail in her face.
Can't remember how I did this... arrrgh... I tried several approaches and liked this one best.
Used this as practise to become more familiar with Painter. Painted from a cloned source with canvas texture. Many more great creative versions than mine here but Photoart is my "Sunday hobby".
Did another version - tried to make a delicate pencil sketch. Used just Photoshop here and inverted, then blurred. Such a delightful subject!
